Upper Back Pain

Why Do I Suffer from Upper Back Pain?

Due to the wide variety of reasons for upper back pain, it can be difficult to pinpoint the right cause without the help of a chiropractor. However, some of the most common causes of upper back pain include issues with poor posture.

Poor posture can be a symptom of a misaligned spine or poor work ergonomics. A misaligned spine can occur as a result of a prior injury, such as whiplash in a car accident, or due to physical deformities someone is born with.

Scoliosis is one of the common causes of poor posture, upper back pain, and spinal deformities. In addition, tense and sore upper back muscles due to stress can also be a culprit for upper back pain. These are just some of the many causes of upper back pain that can negatively impact your quality of life. 

How Can a Chiropractor Help Me Find Relief?

Your chiropractor will determine the root cause of your upper back pain by conducting various physical exams as well as asking you questions about the nature of your pain. Using the information gathered, they will then determine the best chiropractic treatment for your back pain.

This can include muscle stretches and muscle massages to alleviate pain and inflammation in the upper back muscles. Trigger point therapy and spinal decompression as well as chiropractic adjustments are also excellent ways to treat upper back pain. Your chiropractor will determine which of these treatments is best for you.

  • "I visited Dr. Laura after having tension headaches for several months. After the first adjustment, I had instant relief! I have since visited her practice for acupuncture and had the best massage I've ever experienced from Sarah. Dr. Laura is exceptionally knowledgeable in her field, and I highly recommend her!"

  • "Dr. Laura Zaker has helped me realize that the spine is movable. I'm in my early sixties and was skeptical that my persistent back pain could be addressed. After years of sharp pain, within two months, I am amazed that I no longer have the pain. The muscles in my back and neck are no longer feeling strained. I am writing this since I was fortunate to have received this unexpected physical improvement; I am a fan of Dr. Laura Zaker."
